Basketball Recycling Bin

2009-12-16 21:06 - 0 Comments

This recycling bin uses the sport of basketball to attract users. Everyone loves throwing trash at a trash can anyway, so why not make that the point of the can, rather than a side product? It will not only bring more use to the recepticle, but also make users more concerned about missing, and make them want to retry a bad shot, instead of leaving trash on the floor. The hoop, over the recepticle can also be oversized to help prevent missing.

The Subway Game

2009-12-15 22:44 - 0 Comments

This game makes commuting and waiting for trains a fun and stimulating experience. Three huge numbers are painted or pasted on the subway platforms, however not on one surface but several different ones on many levels of depth. The objective of the game is to find the viewpoint from where the color fields makes out a number. Should you stand at the wrong place the fields are incomprehensible. Once you've found the viewpoint where the number is visible you can find a plaque on the floor or closest wall with two small numbers.

People don't pay for parking tickets in most of cases, at least here in Romania... To resolve this problem, I have thought, to make parking ticket machines interactive. Like You can see on my sketch, on the top of the parking ticket machine is a photo camera, which is in permanent contact with a face warp software. The camera takes the shout, the software makes hes job, so, on the parking ticket everybody can see a cartoon about himself. I think, much more people would pay for parking in this way.

Diet elevator

I have identified a problem in buildings which have a reduced number of floors and an elevator. People choose to use the elevator instead of climbing the stairs, which can often be faster and better for physical fitness, but can also mean economy of electricity. In order to change this kind of behavior, we will implement the diet elevator.This elevator contains a weighting machine in the floor. Elevators anyhow have pressure sensor but this will be more precise and will give the exact weight of the person from the elevator, by using an electronic screen placed on the elevator’s wall.

Disco Boxing

2009-12-15 18:09 - 0 Comments

Disco Boxing is an interactive boxing game designed for people to explore healthy ways of relieving stress, exercising and having fun. The harder and faster you hit the punching bags, the more lights you are able to light up, similar to a carnival "strong man" game. The video is a clip of a working prototype we built this summer.

Downtown, there are many public places which have become so famous that they people use them as meeting spots. No problem so far. Every person who come here is waiting and doing things in order to make minutes pass. There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.

Dancing Lessons

2009-12-16 18:30 - 0 Comments

The health habits of the young are getting worse. Instead of getting some physical activity they would rather play computer games or chit-chat in café. However, there is a way to change it. Why not to use the spare time between lectures for entertaining dancing lessons free of charge? All that is needed is TV screen set up somewhere in corridor, DVD with special software, a mirror, and an audio output for headphones (not to increase the level of noise in school). More physical activity equals better health. Submitted by Wojtek Kucz

Garbage Collage!

The shopping list, one paper. The ticket of the transport, one paper more. Mmm... chocolate, one paper more for the collection. What you can do with all the garbage in your pockets?... you cant' throw it anywhere. A trash can is a good solution, but, if you don't see anyone? Make a garbage collage! Just take all this papers, add a little of glue and paste it wherever you want, following figure. Thereby you can take part of a big social project, a huge art project with a lots of fun, where every person participates in his creation.

Voice Of Mother Earth - in your home!

2009-12-09 12:43 - 0 Comments

Often people don't care how increased power consumption impacts our environment. If one could replace traditional power counter in his home by VOME - Voice Of Mother Earth module he would hear sounds like wheeze, buzz, groan or howl each time power consumption increases significantly. On the other hand once we turn out the devices mother earth will let us know how pleased she is by twittering, cooing or any other nature positive sounds. In this way it would be much funnier to save power, what should result in greater savings, isn't that? Submitted by Marcin Maciejewski.

Cranes For Life

2009-12-16 12:14 - 0 Comments

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.

Hand Wash Disco

2009-12-16 20:07 - 0 Comments

Hand hygiene is a serious issue that can sometimes be overlooked and we want to bring it to the attention of the public by making it FUNKY. Our idea is to create a hand basin infront of a false mirror. When people use the automatic tap and wash their hands, a disco scene appears behind the false mirror. It will be complete with lights, music and an amazing mirrorball. This will make handwashing groovy again. Submitted by Neal Watkin

Cars vs Bikes

2009-12-16 16:03 - 0 Comments

What is the matter? We would like people to realize that biking is also a solution.
But how? It is as easy as a counting machine! The purpose of the machine is to count how many bikers and drivers pass by in a day. The placement would be crucial. It has to stand in between a bicycle path and a street so that people could realize how many cars have passed in comparison with bikes. The trend would be shown on a graphic. Who will act to make it go the “right” way?

Litter Games

2009-12-16 11:43 - 0 Comments

Our idea is a fun positive way to tackle the major littering problems in any populated area or city. The idea is to encourage people to throw their rubbish in the public bins already provided, with a few adjustments of course! By placing nets, goals or target boards onto bins in specific problem areas or high risk litter zones e.g. In and around Sports stadiums, music festivals and other major outdoor events, we could tackle the problem directly and have fun doing so!

The Color Shower

2009-12-16 10:08 - 0 Comments

Can you make people spend less water while taking a bath? Most of the times people leave the tap open even if they are not using the water to shower. This is because they do not want to feel the cold from outside. So the idea would be for each shower to have underneath enough water for a person to shower and a system that could clean and recycle that water. This would prevent people to spend too much water. In addition, this shower would generate a warm atmosphere with different color lights and water vapor.

Air moves around us everyday and every breath we take flows through the atmosphere unseen. The Fun«Charger transforms the wind around us into immediately accessible electricity. In locations with dynamic air movement, like a subway station, the Fun«Charger encourages people to play with its moving parts. There is an array of colorful fins that spin with gusts of air. This rotational energy is then converted into electricity in front of spectators’ eyes. The Fun«Charger is an interactive experience that invites people to watch their breath generate energy.
